A Break from Big City Life

This weekend we went on the mini-est camping trip ever... just for one night and the morning, but it was absolute heaven. I really needed a break from sirens, crazy downtown characters and trying to find parking on our street! Travis and I woke on Sunday morning to a little song sparrow singing his heart out, and a woodpecker as our alarm clock. We spent the morning having a campfire feast and walking along the river. While we were packing up to head home we had a spectacular visit by a moma deer and her little one! Such a treat! ...look close in the last photo and you can see the red crest of our campsite woodpecker.... all the gorgeous green mossy trees are one of the first things that made me fall in love with the Pacific NW. All the forests are like fairytale settings. Heaven.
It was also nice to not care about what I was wearing for the day... as you can see by my very unfashionable fireside shot :) Hope you all had a great sunny weekend as well!


  1. Looks like fun! I have never been camping before.

  2. I had never been until a few years ago.... You should definitely look for an excuse to go! Now is a good time of year (out here anyway) because there aren't too many people at the campgrounds. So nice to wake up to nature!

  3. omg! how fun! those deer are so sweet! we have lots and lots of deer in our backyard all the's nice and a nuisance all at the same time b/c they love to eat our landscaping, plus we live IN TOWN, so it's just weird to see them so close (but not as strange as the turkeys, coyotes, and foxes we see on a regular basis). seeing them wild in the woods seems more natural! ;)

  4. lovely masses of green goodness. i am so due for another camping trip!
